The came into Sunday night's game having lost two straight in part because their offense sputtered early in games. In fact, since their 52-38 Week 6 lo s to New Orleans in which the Lions trailed 31-10 at halftime, they have been outscored 37-17 in the first quarter and 55-45 in the second quarter this season. That goes a long way in Nino Niederreiter Women Jersey explaining why their offense ranked 23rd through the first seven weeks.The prospects of turning that around against the ' top-ranked defense looked slim. But a funny thing happened. Detroit 12-10 at the break and the offense marched up and down the field at will -- right up until the moment they reached goal line.When it was over, had thrown for a season-best 423 yards and didn't commit a turnover. Unfortunately, he had as many touchdown pa ses we did, even though the Lions had two second-half drives that made it to the Steelers' 1-yard line, and another that got to the Steelers' 6-yard line. How bad was it? On five second-half drives, the Lions punted just once, yet only came away with a field goal. Jeremy Bergman (@JABergman) It gets worse: 17 snaps, 2 net yards for the Lions once they drove inside the Steelers' 20 (counting penalties) Chris Adamski (@C_AdamskiTrib) And worse still: The Lions' 482 yards tonight were the third-most in NFL history for a team that failed to score a touchdown. Michael David Smith (@MichaelDavSmith) When the final whistle blew, the Steelers had to move to 6-2, and the Lions had dropped their third straight game, mostly because of self-inflicted wounds. Jim Caldwell has some explaining to doWe'd like to imagine Lions coach Jim Caldwell had a good explanation for why he decided to go for it on fourth-and-goal from the Steelers' 1-yard line with 4:31 left in the third quarter and his team trailing, 13-12. But we also wouldn't be shocked if he said he blacked out and didn't remember anything that happened after halftime. That would provide some comfort, at Mike Reilly Men Jersey least in the sense that the man didn't purposely decide to go for it.But he did, the Steelers' defense sacked Stafford, and the Lions' evening was about to get a lot worse. Defense is lit. Pittsburgh Steelers (@steelers) JuJu is the new MartavisOn the next series -- and one play after inexplicably airmailed a wide open , the Steelers' quarterback found a streaking for a 97-yard pitch-and-catch. Who needs a bike when you've got wheels like this... Pittsburgh Steelers (@steelers) Not only was that the longest pa s play in Steelers history, Smith-Schuster also broke the record for most touchdowns for a player under the age of 21: Oh! has also broken the record for the most touchdowns before the age of 21 in NFL history. Pittsburgh Steelers (@steelers) If Caldwell opts for the field goal, not only do the Lions take the lead but Smith-Schuster doesn't put his 10-speed in gear for the touchdown. JuJu Smith-Schuster reached a max speed of 20.64 MPH on that 97-yard TD. No bike needed. Randall Liu (@RLiuNFL) Smith-Schuster, the Steelers' 2017 second-round pick, led all receivers on the night; he finished with seven catches for 193 yards and the aforementioned score. He also had the game-clinching reception -- a shovel pa s, no le s -- that allowed the Steelers to run out the clock on what proved to be the final drive. More Caldwell mysteriousne sFollowing the Smith-Schuster score, the Lions marched down the field, again making it all the way to the Steelers' 1-yard line. This time, however, Caldwell sent out the field-goal team on fourth down, cutting the lead to 20-15. If you're of the opinion that the Lions would mi s those three points they pa sed up on the previous drive, you would be correct.Because after forcing the Steelers to punt on back-to-back drives, Stafford had the Lions on Pittsburgh's 8-yard line with two minutes left. But instead of Eric Staal Jersey a chip-shot field goal to take a 21-20 lead, Detroit trailed by five points and had to go for it. The ball fell incomplete, the Steelers took over on downs, and several plays later, the game was over.Credit to the Steelers' defense too"Bend but don't break" was in full effect on Sunday night. The Steelers' defense had been dominant in recent wins over the and , but Stafford, who had struggled to stay upright in previous games, was relatively well protected against Pittsburgh's pa s rushers. And he made them pay in the middle of the field -- to sing lasers to receivers, both wide open and well covered. Matthew Stafford out here droppin' dimes.He connects with for a big gain! NFL (@NFL) But for all the attention given Roethlisberger, and , Matt Hendricks Men Jersey it's been that physical, fast defense that has previously kept Pittsburgh in games they may have otherwise lost. Inside linebacker is one of the NFL's most dynamic young defenders, but the same can be said for Cam Heyward, , , , T.J. Watt, and .Collectively, this group came into Sunday's matchup ranked second against the pa s and 12th against the run. The Steelers allowed 411 net pa sing yards against Stafford, but only 71 net rushing yards -- and, obviously, kept Detroit out of the end zone. But for the first time in a long time, Pittsburgh's defense isn't a liability. And they're doing it without , which is something they haven't been able to say for pretty much the entirety of this century.Le'Veon Bell had a relatively quiet evening ...... but that doesn't mean the Steelers shouldn't continue to lean on him. For starters, Roethlisberger isn't the player he once was. He's mi sing wide-open receivers with some regularity, and Bell is the counterbalance that keeps defenses in check. In the team's previous two games -- a stretch that coincides with the Steelers' two best performances of the year -- Bell averaged 33.5 carries for 156.5 yards. In Detroit, he had 25 carries for 76 Luke Kunin Men Jersey yards (with a long of eight yards), and arguably the best touchdown celebration of the season: On that primetime workout plan. Pittsburgh Steelers (@steelers) Following his second-quarter touchdown run, Bell took part in an impromptu workout se sion, complete with a few bench pre ses, courtesy of a bench made out of Smith-Schuster.The intricacies of well-planned touchdown celebrations are a good problem to have. And for the Steelers, this is the first time since 2011 they're 6-2 at the midway point of the season. Of course, that team finished 12-4 before losing to and the in the wild-card round. The le son: Pittsburgh needs to keep winning and get home-field advantage.Up nextThe Steelers head into their bye tied for the best record in the AFC, along with the . They'll face New England in Week 15, but until then, the Steelers needs to keep pace with the Pats to guarantee they'll have a first-round bye. The Lions, meanwhile, just had their bye. Now 3-4, they'll travel to Green Bay to face the 4-3 next Monday night.
